This blog is about my garden and the outdoors. I am new to photography but I am trying to show some of the pretty things that grow here in Michigan. I love the wild things who visit me and I dont mind if they eat a bit here and there. I like it more if they let me take their picture. As time goes on I think I will try to show you around the beautiful area that I live in as well as my garden. I try to use my own pictures as much as possible but will also use pictures from the web. If I inadvertently use your photo or work without permission please email me and I will remove it or give credit if you prefer. I will give credit when I know who the owner is. I would ask that anyone using my pictures do the same.

August light.............

This picture is not sharp, I took it from a distance but I love the shadows and the front light with dark background.

Geraniums with the dark background again. I love that look.

These Day Lily are also lit from the front. I love how it makes them really stand out and become transparent almost

Some are not quite so dramatic but it still gives a beautiful light

The red never shows well for this flower but the dark background helps a bit

To follow a few more pictures with front light to give such wonderful shadows in back

I hope you enjoy these flowers, much the same as others but with a different light. I went out today just to find these subjects when the sun was out.

Your yard must look like a botanical garden--everything is so pretty! I like those unusual red flowers--they almost remind me of bird of paradise.
